Basics of a typical day in Spain. I created this lesson in place of lesson on Cambian las costumbres in AQA book as I felt that it is more useful for students if they revise and have practice talking about a typical day in Spain using the present tense rather than the preterite, as is the case in the book. So, if a photo / roleplay should come up related to life in Spain, it will be easier for students to use what they have learnt in this lesson.
By the end of this lesson, I want my students to be able to talk about the basics of a typical day in Spain (time Spanish get up, when and a little about what they eat, shops closing at lunch, the siesta etc.) in Spain. It is also good, but not essential, if you have already covered comparisons with your students.
Starter based on Tener and Tener que + infinitives.
Activity One: Students write what they know about Spain in Spanish using pictures and key words on slide as prompts.
Activity Two: Reading (differentiated resources included with key words / questions in Spanish) about life in Spain.
Activity Three: Students add / improve what they wrote about a day in Spain using what they now have learnt from readings.
Activity Four: Review of comparisons and superlatives as well as practice translating these into English and Spanish.
Final Activity: Speaking practice based on AQA photo style exam. Preparatory slide with some key words students need to describe photo. Then slide with photo and questions as well as option for peer assessment.
